Certain artists define the music of a generation and thus could ultimately claim their stake in calling themselves icons. Therefore, from the sultry voice of Frank Sinatra to the rocking beats of The Rolling Stones, many people will definitely know the names and even more, the tracks that they are well known for and these tunes will once more be given a new light thanks to this years' edition of Strummin' which is taking place on the 14th and the 15th September within the Sir Temi Żammit Hall with the main focus of the evening being a Tribute to the Greats who have as already pointed out before hand, shaped music, and given it meaning.

The cause has always been sublime with this years' benefiiciaries being none other than children and families who are suffering and given aid by Puttinu Cares. The evening will be impeccable, mark my words, noting that the organisation known as Żgħażagħ Ħaddiema Nsara are ensuring an unforgettable night filled with sounds from a guitar ensemble of around sixty (60) guitarists polished to perfection to emulate some of the greatest contributors to music after months of preparation. Last year, there was a great input from the people with a total of €2,400 collected and given to the Malta Community Chest Fund. 

It has to be noted that Strummin' is quickly growing into a notable event especially with the launch of a brand new website which could be accessed here and also a brand new logo designed by none other than Isabel Micallef who won a logo competition against an extremely intriguing group of talented artists. The logo chosen incorporates the essence by which sound is coaxed out of a guitar as well as Strummin''s own identity. Talent is surely key for such an event and it is also to be noted that amongst the people included in the event there are former Malta Song for Europe semi-finalist, Jean Claude Vancell who is also an escflashmalta.com contributor as well as Luke Grech from the local band Relikc. From our editorial board, there is also none other than Andy Muscat and therefore, we would like to officially announce our endorsement for the event following such active involvement by our team.
